another tip. make sure you save as a r12 dxf.i find that if you save as a r14 dxf,and  there are arcs, lazycam will insert a m3 at an arc in the middle of a cut.a real annoyance to have happen.you can get rid of the arcs by exploding three times and then joining polyline, but if the arc is  a large radius, will be faceted.
